How widely travelled are you?

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
How many other countries have you visited and which was your favourite?

I have travelled far less than I would like. I lived in Switzerland for a year and have visited Belgium, France, Italy and Sweden.

Of these few, France is my favourite I think, particularly Provence which I have visited twice. I've also spent time in Normandy (some friends of mine have a house there). Although I found the people in Normandy friendly, the people in the South are particularly warm and laid back and, like the British, they are mongrels, a mix of French, Italian, Basque, Phoenician and all points round the Med.

Before I had cats, I got to travel to many countries and many US states. I think those days are over for me with cats, though.

Travel is a passion of mine. Just to be able to see different cultures and ways people live and think has always been a huge interest to me. I have probably been to over 15 countries and many many US cities.

I've been to Canada and the UK and quite a lot of the states. I'd move to England in a heartbeat if I could. I love the history of Europe (as opposed to America, where anthing over 100 years is our history and then they tear it down to put up something new)

Not very... The only other country I've been to is Canada. I almost went to Mexico when I was in San Diego but I didn't have an ID (I was a teenager) so we ended up not going... I've only been to about 18 or 20 states and a 2-3 of those were just driving through to get to Maine...
My brother is in Japan right now, does that count for something? (I'm catsitting for him...)

I've been to Idaho. Florida & many "grain belt" states. And that's as far as I care to travel. I get sick every time & it generally stinks for all involved. Ask sharky.

I've been to most of the U.S. states with the exception of the northwest (Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Alaska). For foreign countries, I've been to Canada, Mexico, Jamaica, Panama, France and a quick bounce thru the U.K.

I love to travel but its really hard with all the critters we now have. It takes a lot of planning, so our days of spur of the moment hopping in the car or on a plane are long gone.

My favorite country? France. My favorite state? Utah, for the sheer beauty of the National Parks there.

I've been to most US continental states except the northeast. Most of those were just passing through in a car though. I've lived in 7 states. Have been to England once and would love to go back as well as to other places.

I have a major flying phobia though, that would likely prevent me going even if I had the money.

When I was a journalist I travelled all over the world. I have visited (I think!) 47 countries in Western and Eastern Europe, North and South America, the Middle East, the Far East and Africa, many more than once. While in the US I have been to 36 States. I have lived in Britain, the US, Russia, Bosnia and France. But now I really don't want to travel any more. I am happy to put down roots here in France with my animals.

I've never been out of the US. I've been to seven US states... Indiana (obviously ), Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina (very briefly), Georgia & Alabama.

The lower 48 US states, Canada, England and Egypt. The husband and I plan to travel more, and maybe even move to the Gulf or Egypt eventually, but for now, we can barely afford to travel in our own state, let alone the country or the world. *sigh* A trip to egypt may be in the works next year, keeping my fingers crossed!
post #11 of 44
I've been to all the U.S. states except Hawaii, and I've also been to Mexico, England, Northern Ireland, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, and of course, Canada.

Husband's way more travelled than me and has been to all the continents! I want to go with him to Greece and Australia next time he goes.

I'm very happy where I am but my next favorite place to live would be Amsterdam, but I wouldn't mind taking up residence in Switzerland!

I've been to 22 states, including a hand or foot in NM when we were visiting the four corners. I have also been to DC and Puerto Rico.

We have been to Canada, Mexico, England, Scotland, France, Spain, Austria, Germany, Australia and New Zealand. I am hoping to go to Italy next when the recession is over and the dollar is better.

I was in a touring choir in college, so I've been to at least 32 different states. I've also been on a few mission trips to various countries: Mexico, China, South Africa, Sweden and Norway. I enjoyed each country in its own way, but I've always been thankful to live in the USA!

I used to travel a lot when I was in university, I have lived in England, Ireland and Canada and spent a fair amount of time travelling in France, Belgium, Germany, Poland, Greece, as well as short visits to other countries
post #15 of 44
None. The furthest we have tavelled was Hawaii. And DH has been to Canada on fishing trips. We may go to a cat show next summer in Canada.

We still would love to visit Australia, England/Scotland/Ireland one day.
post #16 of 44
We've been to most of the Western Carribean Islands and Puerto Rico. My favorite place is Grand Caymen. We would love to go to Italy, Rome and Spain but until the kitties get stable enough to leave it won't happen. I LOVE to travel and see new places and the different cultures so getting my wings clipped is hard.

Not at all . I live in B.C. Canada. I have visited Alberta the next province over.

As a student, I lived in France (just outside of Geneva) for almost a year. While there, I visited in Switzerland a lot, Italy, and Spain. Since then, I've been in all 50 states, all of the Canadian provinces that touch the U.S. (plus Nova Scotia), most of the Mexican states (but usually just on the shore, on cruises), many of the Caribbean islands (yes, Grand Cayman is very nice), England, the Netherlands, Germany (just passing through), Colombia, Honduras (just Roatan), Belize, and...uh...San Francisco (that's a foreign country, right?).

We have an Irish friend who has promised to escort us in Ireland, if we ever go over there. For you ladies: He's good-looking, single, and was at one time the #1 salesman for Cadbury in all of Ireland.

Great Britain, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, France, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Canada (Toronto), Bahamas and many US states. I don't think I can pick just one favorite. I love London because there's so much to do. Paris is gorgeous. Switzerland and Austria are breathtaking. The Dominican is very interesting and beautiful tropical scenery. I love California, especially wine country and LA. Italy has amazing food! My travel wish list includes Alaska, Australia and New Zealand, Japan, China and Asian countries, India, all of Europe, the South Pacific, Hawaii, Patagonia, Africa, Southern France, the Middle East, Russia. I better stop now or I won't see my cat for years

I'd love to travel more! I did a bit when I was younger, but that's been curtailed for a while now.

I have been to: New Zealand, Australia, Fiji, New Caledonia, Cooks, Tonga, Singapore, Malayasia, Indonesia, Japan, Russia, England (and Wales & Scotland too of course!), Ireland, France, Canada, and 3 US states (NY, California & Hawaii).
Touched down in a few other countries, but that doesn't count!
post #25 of 44
I've been to the US, Canada and Japan. Within my own country I've only been to 1 other state.
post #26 of 44
Not very well traveled at all.

I've been to Canada once, St. Maarten N.A twice, St. Thomas USVI twice, Nassau, Bahamas once, Cocoa Cay once, Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Indiana, off the top of my head.

I definitely would love to travel to other countries, especially ones in Europe. I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE to go on a Mediterranean cruise. Since we have no kids, nor any desire to have any, hopefully we'll be able to do a lot of traveling in the future.

I've been to England and Nova Scotia. The places I've been in the US are Ky (lived there), North Carolina (live here). South Carolina, Louisiana, Maine, Oregon, Florida, Virginia, West Virginia, Hawaii, Rhode Island and New York.

I've never left Canada. I've been as far west as the Pacific Ocean, as far north as Grande Prairie, AB, as far south as some little town in SK, and as far east as Estevan, SK. So I'm not widely traveled; however I know some people that have never left Saskatchewan! I love Saskatchewan though. I could stay here forever! There is virtually every kind of landscape you can think of. In the south there are never-ending prairies and the occasional sand dune. To the north is the Canadian Shield, full of lakes and beautiful forests. It's the best of both worlds!
post #29 of 44
Not very, only The Americas, South America, Mexico and the US. I would like to change that though and would love to visit Holland and Japan!
post #30 of 44
Ive lived in four different countries and just moved back to Australia.

so this is my list, England, Scotland, France, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Austria, Russia, Estonia, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Latvia.

I can say i've been to Dubai as i had to stand outside at the airport, the air was so hot at 7 am in the morning and it had a different smell to other parts of the world.

Been to Singapore, Bangkok and Hong Kong several times but never managed to have a few days there.

Eventually id like to go to the US and to Canada.
